2:30 am
abc's clayton sandell is following it all. >> reporter: shutting down all southbound lanes of an atlanta-area highway. at least nine people were injured. dark clouds rolled in over washington. the capitol barely visible in the afternoon skyline. a huge lightning bolt making a direct hit on the library of congress just behind it. in phoenix there are multiple water rescues under way after storms hit the area. and it turns out that tornado that hit upstate new york sunday was an ef1, up to 110 miles per hour, causing thousands of dollars in damage. from one part of the country to the next, severe weather brought on by the jet stream and a major push of cold air. folks from minnesota to wisconsin bundled up against the autumn-like chill, and more of the same is in the forecast. temperatures will drop into the
2:31 am
40s for some areas tuesday morning, helping fuel even more severe storms because as a cold front passes with all that dense cold air the warm moist summer air rises up against it, creating new storms. clayton sandell, abc news, denver. >> these storms were part of an unusual weather system making the midwest feel like september. >> sending storm warnings out to millions. our coverage continues now with accuweather meteorologist jim dickey. good morning, jim. >> good morning, reena and devin. an unseasonably cold air mass holds across the midsection of the nation. many spots 10 to 20 degrees below average. held in the 60s in many locations. in the fringes of that seeing some heavy thunderstorms once again. out across the corridor in the northeast some gusty winds, large hail, threat for flash flooding. the storms extend all the way down southward to the florida panhandle. again bringing the threat for flooding along with strong powerful winds. very different story across the west. heat wave continues in the northwest. reena and devin, back to you. >> thanks so much, jim.

a terrifying ordeal for an ohio family whose car was swept away by rushing waters. the father managed to grab his 3-year-old daughter and climb a tree where they were stuck for an hour. the mother, meanwhile, was swept four miles away before climbing to safety and calling for help. each thought the other had drowned until they were reunited. our other major story this morning, a possible breakthrough to end the deadly conflict in the middle east. after one week of fighting israel has accepted a cease-fire, but hamas is rejecting the plan. the plan calls for bringing the violence to an end today, opening gaza's border crossings and holding talks in cairo within two days. president obama welcomed the idea at the white house dinner celebrating ramadan. >> we are encouraged that egypt has made a proposal to accomplish this goal, which we hope can restore the calm we've been seeking. >> so far more than 180 palestinians have been killed and nearly 1,400 injured. israel has targeted with about 1,500 sites in gaza and more
2:33 am
than 1,000 rockets have been fired at israel. the pentagon is selling $11 billion worth of weapons to the tiny middle eastern nation of qatar. the country played a key role in the release of former p.o.w. bowe bergdahl, who now has returned to active duty. abc's brian ross has more on that. >> reporter: a new chapter for sergeant bowe bergdahl. just a little over six weeks since the dramatic prisoner swap in the afghan desert that ended his five years of captivity in the hands of the taliban. the army announced bergdahl has been returned to regular duty and given a desk job at fort sam houston in san antonio. after completing what military psychologists said would be his reintegration process. >> in captivity fundamentally your decision to make any choice is taken away. so we slowly increase their chances to make choices and have a sense of control. >> reporter: during his long captivity bergdahl's parents were tireless in their efforts to gain his freedom. >> i pray this video may be shown to our only son. >> reporter: but army officials
2:34 am
said that bergdahl did not meet with his parents during the transition period. >> my name is bowe bergdahl. >> reporter: bergdahl's return to regular duty also means that the army can begin the most sensitive part of its investigation, questioning him about how he became a taliban prisoner in the first place. since his release the taliban posted this propaganda photo online showing a smiling bergdahl with a taliban leader who has since been killed. but the taliban did not release any pictures of the metal cage in which bergdahl says he was held after trying to escape. the pentagon says officials have concluded that bergdahl did not engage in any criminal misconduct while a prisoner. but as to the investigation of whether as some alleged he deserted his post, those results are not due for another month. brian ross, abc news, new york. >> so fascinating that he hasn't met with his parents yet apparently. or hasn't asked to see them after they were so instrumental in helping him get free. >> yeah, i found that incredible.
2:35 am
and also the fact that he's returned to active duty. but sometimes they say it's easier to try and go back to your old life doing some of the routine, the things that you are used to. so maybe that sort of helps with the reintegration process. yeah. moving on to major league baseball. just hours before the all-star game the league is take steps to welcome gay players. the league will be announcing a program of inclusion to combat homophobia. it will come during a news conference today with the family of one gay player who quit pro baseball more than 30 years ago. glenn burk, who played with the l.a. dodgers and oakland athletics, said it was too difficult to hide his homosexuality. the new program will be run by openly gay former player billy beane. tonight the game could be dominated by pitching. the national league will start adam wainwright of the cardinals while felix hernandez of the mariners takes the mound for the american league. the last two all-star games were shutouts. derek jeter of the yankees will lead off for the american league. the shortstop is making his 14th and final all-star appearance.
2:36 am
well, oakland's yoenis cespedes won this year's all-star home run derby. i hope i got that man's name right. i'm sorry. i'm not a big baseball fan. making him the contest's first repeat winner in 15 years. the oakland slugger hit 28. fewer than last year but enough to win. his last homer was the longest of the night. it traveled 452 feet into the third deck in left field. cespedes outslugged cincinnati's todd frazier in the final round 9-1. >> pretty nice. >> yeah. as you mentioned, this is derek jeter's last all-star game before he retires, and a tribute is going viral. >> jeter is being honored in this new ad with fans from all walks of life giving him a tip of their cap. >> there's former mayor rudy giuliani in this video, billy crystal, jay-z. even tiger woods. maybe the best part, though, is when some red sox fans, you'll see them here in a second, grudgingly show some respect to
2:37 am
jeter and tip their hats. >> how did that happen? >> it's a neat video. powerful. produced by michael jordan's brand name, jordan brands. >> it's been getting a pretty warm welcome. making his last appearance at various stadiums around the country. it's nice to see that people are doing this. >> he's a class act in baseball. i don't know a lot about baseball, but i do know that he's well regarded everywhere and it will be fun to see all those guys take the field tonight. >> big game. >> in my home town, minneapolis. the first all-star game at target field there. very exciting. >> look forward to the highlights from the espn boys. well, coming up in "the skinny," poking fun at one of the most popular songs of the year, pharrell's "happy." >> and later, it's no ordinary cadillac convertible. take a ride in this rolling hot tub. you're in for a splash. stay with us. you're watching "world news now." ♪ baby you can drive my car ♪ and maybe i love you

2:43 am
tell us about it than our very own matt gutman? >> reporter: it sure seems like a very sharky summer. last week this california swimmer chomped by a great white. >> and it's biting your chest and you're staring at it. >> reporter: the attacks no coincidence. the number of great whites up 42% since 1997. more than 2,000 of the truck-sized fish now roaming the east coast alone. the good news -- we now know where a lot of them are. thanks to gps, scientists and fishermen tagging 6 of the apex predators just this weekend. and over the past year millions online already tracking a 2,300-pounder named catherine. from cape cod to key west and nearly to louisiana. their comeback? thanks to an increase in their favorite food, seals. thankfully not humans. swimming with sharks south of the bahamas i learned some sharks actually crave affection, even the hug of a reporter. in case you're wondering about catherine the great white, well, she's hooked a big old u-turn
2:44 am
and is heading back to south florida beaches like this one. and who knows? maybe at some point this summer she could be headed to a beach near you. matt gutman, abc news, miami. >> all i hope is my beach has a tracking device to figure out where it is. i hope so. i don't want to end up in the water with one of those. but i'm glad they're on the rebound i guess. >> they said one report puts the shark population off the california coast at more than 2,000 alone. and matt was here a couple weeks ago. he says he's been out, as you see, doing numerous shark stories. they've proven over and over again that they have increased in the waters. i don't know what they're eating. >> well, seals apparently. but in the '80s they were fished pretty heavily, to the point of depletion. good to see them back. >> all right. >> if you like sharks. when we come back, big news. really big news out of buckingham palace this morning. and a take on pharrell's "happy" video. you've got to see this one. by weird al yankovic. check it out in "the skinny." yankovic. check i ut in "the skinny." it's next.
